On this week’s “Medium” episode, Joe Dubois is faced with the temptation of infidelity. Allison is admitted into the hospital because she mysteriously can’t understand anything anyone is saying to her. Joe is approached by Allison’s doctor. To his surprise, he realizes that the doctor is flirting with him and then she offers Joe her phone number.
It seems as though Joe is getting increasingly annoyed by Allison’s ongoing mini dramas. Last season, Joe’s irritation slowly became obvious but this season, it’s extremely evident. If you notice, Joe seems to have an attitude with Allison. On this “Medium” television episode he would almost scoff at Allison whenever she tried to communicate with him.
Some of Allison’s past mini dramas consists of having a brain tumor, switching bodies with a man at a hospital, and now this season, switching bodies with her middle daughter, and burning her hand. Let’s just say she has been to the hospital emergency room more times than normal. Not to mention the fact that Joe Dubois is constantly being awakened by Allison’s nightmares on a nightly basis. Can Joe take it any longer? Perhaps Joe is at the end of his rope.
In the Dubois household. Joe just doesn’t appear to fit in. He is the only member of the Dubois family household who doesn’t have “the gift”. His three daughters also have the gift. On a season of “Medium” Joe had to deal with the fact that his middle daughter was using a ghost help her win soccer games.
It must be extremely difficult for him to relate to any of the Dubois women. He is a constant outsider in his own home. Even though he and Allison can both relate to begin awaken in the middle of the night and not getting the proper amount of sleep; he doesn’t begin to understand what it feels like to be awaken by a gruesome nightmare of a murder night after night.
As the season goes on, it will be very interesting to see if Joe cracks under the pressure of always having to deal with Allison’s mini dramas. Will Joe take the doctor up on her offer? Will he call her or even take it a step farther and take her out on a date? Will Joe crumble and have an affair this season? Will Allison and Joe share more intense arguments? These are some of the questions that viewers can’t wait to have answered.
